In celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb, the California Science Center at USC is presenting King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh until January 2019. This particular exhibit is the world debut of these 150 treasures (some of which have never before left Egypt), and after this world tour, all artifacts related to King Tut will reside permanently in their new home in Egypt.

Who will write the poem about Where the Sidewalk Bends?
Or, even Where the Sidewalk Buckles

Once it read Sherwood Flor…t, but now it is just S…st.
